Then

the

mouse

danced

even

faster.

Its

tail

swung

around

and

sent

the

grasshopper

flying

into

the

air

to

land

at

the

feet

of

the

Princess!

Princess

(roaring

with

laughter)

Ha,

ha,

ha!

Ha,

ha,

ha!

Ha,

ha,

ha!

Jack

(on

his

knees

before

the

Princess)

Laugh

Number

Three!

Everyone

is

cheering

because

I

have

made

you

laugh.

Princess,

will

you

marry

me?

Reader

(as

Princess

helps

Jack

to

his

feet)

And

so

Jack

won

the

Princess

and,

in

the

end,

a

kingdom.

Jack’s

Mother

You

are

not

foolish

at

all,

Jack

my

son.

You

are

not

foolish

at

all!
